Michigan Woman Finds Snake in Secondhand Couch

We've heard of snakes on a plane, but now snakes in a couch?

Two months after a Michigan woman moved a secondhand couch she found on a curb into her bedroom, she said she discovered a giant snake had been lurking under the cushions.

In a video obtained by ABC News' Grand Rapids affiliate WZZM-TV, Holly Wright said she took the couch from off the street and had had it in her bedroom for "a couple months" before finding the reptile.

Wright even said she had cleaned the couch when she first took it home but never saw the creature.

Wright said, to her surprise, her mystery roommate revealed itself over the weekend when it tried to slither out of the couch, possibly in search of food or warmth, she said.

With the couch flipped upside-down, a video taken by Wright and her boyfriend showed what appeared to be a lethargic snake stuck halfway between the cushion area and under the couch.

"It's pretty big. We don't know what kind of snake it is for sure," Wright said after she prodded it with the hook from a plastic hanger.

She said the snake died before she could get help for it.

"Funny, my room almost feels a little empty now," she told WZZM. "It's been really sad actually to realize all this time I was in proximity to that animal (that) was probably suffering."
